Swarm Manufacturing: Robotic 3D Printers Divide and Conquer Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things technologies led to the development of swarm robots and additive manufacturing. Now, the two are coming together in a marriage that could change supply chains and manufacturing globally and, some researchers claim, could reach outer space.
AI Reshapes Fashion Design and Manufacturing Artificial intelligence technologies and robotics are driving changes in the world of fashion. From market analysis to custom designs to waste reduction, AI opens the door for designers to be on trend, responsive, and conscientious global citizens.
Connected Technologies Improve Healthcare Delivery, Safety, and Efficiency Smart technologies are transforming healthcare delivery to elevate patient care, improve patient outcomes, increase diagnosis accuracy, and more.
Industrial Voice-Controlled Robots Use AI to Facilitate Programming Voice-controlled industrial robots incorporate AI and speech recognition to instruct robots and cut programming time by as much as 90 percent.
Robots Help Children with Autism Develop Social Skills Social assistive robots can help children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) develop social skills while fostering appropriate behavior and communication.
Automated Sewing Machines Bring Change to Fast Fashion Precision sewing machines use computer vision to drastically reduce the cost of producing garments. The robotic system brings supply chains close to the customer, enabling companies to offer on-demand manufacturing, fast fulfillment, and customized clothing, while reducing overstock and waste.
Expression-detecting Robots Assist Humans with Everyday Tasks Researchers at Franklin & Marshall College have developed a tabletop robot that can understand some forms of human expression. Using artificial intelligence and computer vision, the robot can detect through eye movement, motion, and speech patterns when a human needs guidance or assistance with a task.
Computer Vision Solution Delivers Clarity with AI An intelligent computer vision solution corrects the distortion common in fisheye lenses and embeds metadata directly in the images to enable advanced AI-based applications. The technology improves images from cameras used in security, phones, laptops, and video conferencing solutions. Another application in the works is Joyce, a humanoid robot that integrates advanced optics with cognitive capabilities to allow for more human-like interactions.
New Podcast: The Brave New World of Hospitality Robots A staffing shortage in hospitality has opened the door for more automation and intelligence to fill in for desperately needed service staff. Rolling into that void is a new generation of service robots from Savioke who can deliver food, towels, and coffee to hotel guests. Listen to our podcast with Savioke’s founder who describes the value robots can have, including two guest-pleasing features: robots don’t sneeze on anyone, and they don’t need tips.
Hotels Roll Out Smart Service Robots to Help with Staffing Shortage Relay+®, an intelligent robot designed by Savioke for the hospitality industry, can deliver room service and essential items such as food, snacks, and towels to guests. By adding rapid install capabilities, Savioke aims to lower the cost of robot deployment for hotels and foodservice operations and supplement staff in the current labor shortage.
